Jeff and Annie Armistead, Owners

Established in 2002 by Bill and Corinne Graefe, Phoenix Hardwoods built its reputation through high-quality, artisan-crafted hardwood furniture and home goods. After nearly twenty-years in business, the founders were retiring and planning to close the company. In January 2020, longtime friends of the Graefe’s, Jeff and Annie Armistead, acquired the business. It was a perfect match with Jeff, a lifelong conservationist, and Annie, a local artist and gallery owner. Their desire was to continue what had become a loved and well-respected local business. They are passionate about retaining true handmade artisan craftsmanship which is rich in Floyd and part of the draw to this truly unique community. In addition to keeping the facility and retaining their team of talented young artisans, the company’s retail expansion into the Town of Floyd is breathing new life into the old Farmer’s Supply store, a Floyd landmark that opened in the 1930’s and closed in late 2020.  

Our Crew

HENRY VANGUNTEN

HENRY VANGUNTEN

So the story is that Henry came to work for us because he was friends with Bradley & Eric, on their same Floyd County High School wrestling team, and heard that starting pay was higher than minimum wage. In 2 years, he discovered that he is truly a woodworker, enjoying everything from choosing the lumber, to designing projects, and carrying them through from sketch to final polish. He taught himself to do the bowties, and we rely on him to take care of the cracks this way...

BRADLEY LAWSON

BRADLEY LAWSON

Bradley started 5 yrs. ago, and as many of you have heard, didn't know how to use a tape measure... We are proud to say he is a craftsman now, building pieces from start to finish! An excellent finisher, we count on him to keep up our reputation for extremely smooth finishes. He was part of the Floyd County High School wrestling team, with family in Indian Valley. In his spare time Bradley makes wood jewelry, and goes to concerts.

ERIC MCDANIEL

ERIC MCDANIEL

Eric has been steadily mastering the art of slab stool making, for which we are very grateful! He was also part of the Floyd county High School wrestling team, with family in Indian Valley. After hours, we often find him woodworking, from swords to tables, and one of the most beautiful beds (for himself) that's ever come out of our shop.
